100g mixed lettuce greens
2 small tomatoes, cut into wedges
1 small Lebanese cucumber, cut in chunks
¼ avocado, scooped out in teaspoonfuls
15g chopped almonds
1 tbs chopped flat leaf parsley
¼ small red onion, cut in thin slices
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp good quality vinegar (balsamic, red wine or white wine)
½ tsp dried Italian herbs
pinch of salt & cracked pepper
Make the dressing ahead. The longer this has to stand, the better the flavours will be. The onion 'pickles' in the vinegar, softening it and adding its flavour to the dressing. This can last for a few weeks, so well worth making a large batch for all your salad needs. Also great over steamed vegetables.
Combine onion, oil, vinegar, herbs, salt & pepper in a bowl and set aside
Place lettuce in a bowl, top with remaining ingredients.
